With an area of 83,570 square miles, Idaho is the 14th largest state in the US. It is home to major industries, including food processing, chemicals, paper products, electronics, manufacturing, and mining. In addition, Idaho is also an important agricultural state that produces nearly one-third of the potatoes grown across the United States.
Storage containers can also help serve Idaho’s construction, petrochemical, retail, education, government and military, healthcare, and automobiles industries.
With a growing economy, Idaho continues to see a greater demand for containers for office and storage needs. Affordable prices, easy modifications, and mobility make their case stronger and demand higher.
To fulfill the growing demand for Idaho’s storage solutions, Mobile Modular Portable Storage offers shipping containers that one can use for storage, office, or as a combination of both. Our office containers come pre-fitted with doors, windows, HVAC systems, lighting fixtures, insulation on the walls, wood floors, and electrical fittings.
In addition, you can choose to add more accessories such as furniture, shelves, and security boxes.
One example of our container services is a substation control house in Idaho made from our container unit. We delivered a custom-built 20-foot shipping container with the required accessories within two months of receiving the design.

With a diverse use of shipping containers, let us look at some of their industry-specific applications that will benefit businesses in Idaho.
There are other innovative ways in which you can use shipping containers as well. This includes affordable housing, restaurants and cafes, garages, theaters and bistros, hotels, workshops, art galleries, saunas and swimming pools, vacation homes, laboratories, student housing, and bars.
A utility contractor in Idaho partnered with Mobile Modular Portable Storage (formerly Design Space Modular Buildings) to purchase a 20-foot shipping container. This custom-built unit is an insulated office furnished with a security door, HVAC, interior mounted electric panels, and a control cable entrance.
The client uses the container as a control house at a substation in Idaho. Known for our on-time delivery, Mobile Modular Portable Storage delivered the unit within two months after receiving the design.
If you need a container for less than 2 or 3 years, we suggest you rent. Renting for a short period gives you the flexibility to use the container for as long as you want and return it if you change location.
The 20' and 40' containers are our most common containers. The cost of renting a container usually depends on the size and condition of the container and the modification you choose to do. There is an additional fee for pick-up and delivery, depending on the distance from our facility.
Here is a guide on the rental costs of our containers:

Shipping containers offer a versatile and dynamic solution to all your storage needs. They can convert to functional and aesthetic buildings as offices, storage units, homes, labs, booths, and more.
Mobile Modular can help you find the perfect shipping container for all your applications.
Before ordering cargo containers, you need to ensure that your site has enough extra space for safe delivery and placement:
It would help if you had at least 14' clear height and 12' - 15' width at the place where you want to place the container.
You would also need to consider the door direction. For example, the door could be near or away from the cab of the delivery truck. For office and combo containers, you also need space for the door on the side.
If your requirement is not more than three years, we advise that you rent the container. You can rent it for as little as a month.
Most shipping container structures are made of high-strength CORTEN steel with corrugated walls and hinged doors. The steel can withstand harsh environments and extreme temperatures at sea. However, to prolong the life of your rented container, we recommend that you regularly maintain your container to keep rust formation at bay.
We deliver the shipping container on the scheduled day as decided mutually. With our fleet of trucks and trailers, we don't have an external dependency for delivery. We take less than 1-hour to send you a quotation, and the time needed for customizations depends on your requirements.
Absolutely! Shipping containers are meant for marine transportation and have load-bearing steel frames. One of the main benefits of using a shipping container for commercial and residential applications is the ability to stack them safely.
OSHA clearly states that you need to fasten the containers to each other so that they don't slide. However, you need to comply with OSHA guidelines for safely stacking the storage units.
Here are some additional guidelines to keep in:
Yes! You can minimize your financial loss by paying a small fee and protect your rented container against natural calamities such as floods, fires, tornadoes, windstorms, lightning, hurricane, hail, smoke, earthquake, explosion, and third-party vehicle collision.
